Dog and cat photography is becoming more and more popular as more people treat their pets like their family! Our pets play very important roles in our lives and it is only natural for us to want to keep memories of them for years and years to come. We all know how short their time is with us, taking photos of them is a way to create some beautiful memories of them to be cherished long after they are gone.
Give me a call or shoot me an email today! We will set up a consultation to go over few basics and schedule an in-person meet. During the meet, we will go over everything in greater detail and plan out the session, including location.
Choosing a great location is very important, but luckily there are plenty of beautiful spots around Western Massachusetts or nearby Connecticut towns. I often visit Forest Park in Springfield or Stanley Park in Westfield with my clients, but there are many other hidden gems in this area. Most of my sessions are scheduled for the late afternoons and early evenings to ensure the most beautiful light.
Lily Raven serves greater Springfield area, Western and Central Massachusetts, and Northern Connecticut. Other locations available upon request!
We also offer studio-styled sessions for dogs and cats. These can be done in the comfort of your own home!
The session will be a fun, laid-back, laughter-filled experience while we romp and play with your pooch- after all, they are the star of the day! Usually, there are no props or forced poses (unless, perhaps, it’s a birthday session), we let the dogs be dogs (well, and there is sure not telling cats what to do)! Be sure to expect lots of laughs and silly stuff!
The on-location sessions are mostly for dogs. We will journey through beautiful landscapes at the local parks and fields, or some unique city streets. We will capture beautiful moments that you will look back to years later and smile! Most importantly, please know that your pup does not need to be an obedience champion or the most outgoing dog, we work with dogs of all ages and personalities, including shy and reactive dogs.
I offer a variety of beautiful high quality products to display the beautiful artwork we create during the session - from classic and modern canvases, to gorgeous acrylics and metals, albums, and beautiful archival prints.
Signature Session fee is $200, which includes: a pre-session consultation, an on-location photo shoot lasting up to 2 hours, up to 2 pets from the same household, 20-30 images to select your art products from, and an Image Premier and Ordering session at my home studio or in the comfort of your own home.
Complimentary web-ready digital files of any images purchased as artwork. Please note that session fee does not include any prints or digital files. The session fee is due at the time of booking your photo shoot.
